Raw must be incredibly easy to write thesedays

Sounds arrogant but it's true. Taking into account the last 8 weeks, the only creative developments have involved about 15 superstars. That is who you are writing for.

The creative developments are few and far between. Ryback turns heel, CM Punk walks out on the WWE, Triple H pedigreeing Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar smashing Triple H's office, McGillicutty repackaged. Apart from the occasional post match attack or confrontation, that is about it.

The rest of the show is just matches between mid carders to develop a semi-feud, with rematches taking place on Smackdown and Main Event shortly afterwards. Vince and Stephanie just want TV writers so he feels like a Hollywood producer, doesn't he? Any half decent booker could do the job thesedays: Dusty Rhodes, Paul Heyman, Dutch Mantel etc

If given these orders by McMahon/Dunn/Levesque - only push the names; everything else is filler. In addition to being told when to turn somebody face or heel. Then I'm certain most members on here could do the job. For example, after giving Tensai/Rhodes 3 minutes and saying it will with a clean pinfall, the road agents will put that match together. And so on.

That's exactly what they are trying to do though, it's a PG program.

Any of those guys have proved they can do the job better than any "writer" now days.

That AND they're trying to cater to older smarks at the same time. The only problem is that they don't know how to do that effectively and the children are still their main focus. The storytelling apparently doesn't have to make much sense for the childrens' parents to throw money at the WWE. As long as the kid favorites are booked the best it doesn't matter in the business sense.




Favorite wrestlers: Undertaker - Dean Ambrose
They're the best. Not even up for debate.

Don't blame it on pg. They can make it interesting if they tried even if it was PG.

The question is do they need too? They're making a shit ton of money regardless.
